Submitting a correct application form
Application Forms are often used by employers to find out more specific information than found on a CV. They enable employers to identify the necessary skills and experience for the job at a glance, as the information is provided in the same format.
- Don’t lie
- Be honest
- Ask for advice

Online applications are now commonly used by large employers, e.g. NHS, local authorities and retailers.
